Substitute Employment Options
A. CERTIFIED SUBSTITUTE
To become a Wyoming Certified Substitute who fills in when certified teachers are absent, carefully review the Wyoming Professional Teaching Standards Board Website (click PTSB) to gain better understanding of the process and requirements for becoming a Wyoming certified substitute teacher. Requirements include successful completion of the U.S. and Wyoming Constitution test as well as fingerprinting.
In addition to the Wyoming PTSB Application requirements, TCSD #1 requires successful completion of paperwork, fingerprinting, and participation in a substitute induction program prior to working as a substitute in Teton County Schools.
The pay for certified substitute teachers is $80.00 for half-day and $160.00 for full-day.
B. NON-CERTIFIED SUBSTITUTE
TCSD #1 uses non-certified substitutes to fill in for classified/paraprofessional staff such as secretaries and paras when absent. Because Wyoming PTSB substitute certification is not necessary for classified/paraprofessional staff in Teton County Schools, non-certified substitutes may begin work immediately upon successful completion of TCSD #1 paperwork, fingerprinting, and substitute induction program. The pay for non-certified substitutes is $14.98 an hour.
C. SUBSTITUTE PAY
Hourly rate = $14.98. (maximum 8-hour day)
Short term rates:
Half day (8:00 am -12:00 pm) plus lunch = $80
Full day (8:00 am - 4:00 pm) = $160
Long term rate is $250.00 per day (8am-4pm)
D. SUBSTITUTE TEACHER INDUCTION PROGRAM
In order to be fully "cleared" for subbing in Teton County Schools, all substitutes, certified or non-certified, are required to participate in a comprehensive Substitute Teacher Induction Program that has two components: Substitute Orientation (Half Day - 3.5 hours) AND Tour of Schools (Full Day - 8 hours)
NOTE: Most substitute applicants participate in the Substitute Teacher Induction Program while they are waiting for Wyoming PTSB certification approval (4-6 weeks for permit delivery)
